Northern Solstice and Mercury Stations Direct

Notes from the Dreamtime
The Land Calls the People. The People Coexist with the Land.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

During the Northern Solstice of 2021, Mercury is stationing direct. This kind of confluence happens often, where turning point events cluster up. The current Mercury retrograde also included two eclipses and the central event of Saturn square Uranus.

There were other little flourishes. For the entire duration of the retrograde, Mercury and Neptune have been in a square aspect (90-degrees), which has been soggy, and calling for constant vigilance. For the next few weeks, well into July, we will be sorting out truth from lies. With each passing wave of that process, a few more people wake up.

It is difficult for most people to admit they have been fooled or in any way taken. It is easy for people in authority to abuse the trust that is invested in them.

There is a reason the meso-American shaman don Juan Matus, written about by Carlos Castinada, called clarity one of the enemies of humanity. He meant false clarity: thinking you know when you do not, or not knowing when you do not know.

One remedy for this problem is to spend a lot of time actively assuming you’re wrong, and actively attempting to disprove yourself. Another way to say that is recognizing and challenging your assumptions. This is one of the major spiritual tasks of our day: the essence of true ethics in our time.

Saturn-Uranus Square — What Gives? What Receives?

Dear Friend and Reader:

Monday was the second of three contacts of Saturn square Uranus. I wrote about this extensively in February, framing my discussion on the two concepts of science represented by these planets.

Maria Salomea Skłodowska, who we know as Madame Curie. She died of radiation exposure.

One is true science, which means the scientific method of a testable theory, experimentation, and a conclusion — which is then not considered “the truth” until it’s re-tested and subjected to evaluation.

The other is the science we are familiar with, which is industrial, commercial and governmental use of laboratories. This is corporate science or political science, which gets its pristine image from people the likes of Sir Isaac Newton and Marie Curie (nee Sklodowska), who were not death merchants or paid shills but rather original seekers of discovery and servants of true progress.

(Sir Isaac, one of the greatest scientists and mathematicians in history, got it right when he said that God put everything in its place. He is also the one who asked why apples fall downward when they have so many other options.)

We must not confuse these authentic scientists with those at Monsanto, Pfizer, Merck, Moderna and the Wuhan Virus Factory. That would be like the Mafia using Giada De Laurentiis or Luciano Pavarotti to clean up its image. Yes, they are all Italian, but the similarities end there.

Anthony Fauci does not get any Brownie points from me merely for claiming to be in the same industry as Asclepius (or for being Italian).
